What do we offer?

The Centre provides doctoral level training in a unique multidisciplinary environment at the interfaces between chemical, engineering, computational, pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. A comprehensive scientific and soft-skills training curriculum also involves our UK-based students undertaking a 12-week training project at both academic and industry sites before commencing their PhD research and our Ireland-based students undertaking an industry placement.

The CDT (Centre for Doctoral Training) is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Council (EPSRC), Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and a number of industry partners. The Centre provides world-leading training to prepare strategic-thinking scientists for high achieving careers in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.

In addition, students participate in innovation and entrepreneurship activities, conference and colloquia events, team working and problem solving, and outreach activities, all with very close industry involvement.

We will be holding a Virtual Open Day on 17th November 2022, registration for this event will open nearer the time. Please check back here for updates and details.

Entry and funding requirements

Candidates should have, or expect to obtain, a first or upper-second class degree, or international equivalent, in pharmacy, chemistry, engineering, physics, biology, mathematics or related sciences, or a relevant master’s qualification.

EPSRC Studentships

These awards are given to students at UoN and UCL. Awards for UK residents cover tuition fees and provide a stipend at the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) rate. UCL students will receive an additional allowance to reflect the higher costs of living in London. International applicants are welcome to apply for the CDT. Both UoN and UCL have set aside funding to support outstanding scholars from around the world and ensure that they can join the CDT and receive all the same benefits as UK residents.

If you are unsure whether you have UK or International student status, the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) can help you assess your fee status.

SFI Studentships

Studentships are based in Ireland and are open to UK, EU and non-EU students. Funding will cover EU fees only and a stipend in one of the following universities: Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork or University College Dublin.
